Hello friends, I have had my eye on the Homespun BOM by Natalie Bird.....A Letter to My Daughter quilt. I have been collecting the issues and putting them by until I decided on fabric choices and also how to substitute a couple of the blocks to better reflect my DD.
The brighter Tilda ranges seemed right so a gathering I went....quite a lot brighter than I usually work in but nice and happy colours.
My DD is NOT a camper but still likes adventure so I omitted the caravan from Block 2.
Definitely NO sewing in her world either! However, she is a wonderful photographer. I found this free Camera pattern on Pinterest for Block 1.....I kind of think its very cute.
All the other blocks will be ok the way they are.....so Block 3 was as per the pattern.
I am really loving all the lovely sayings in this quilt. I have lots of little stitcheries on the go now for this as well.
Since I last posted I have added to my little hearts.
And another block for my Where We Love Is Home.....Wash Day!
Tags are up to date and almost at an end....
TAG 44 - Cross stitches
TAG 45 - Fireworks
TAG 46 - Wrapped......I couldn't decide whether to go with something from Nature or utilise a beautiful thread holder I received from a dear friend.....so I went with both....just because I could!
So that's what I have been up to of late.....this week I am trying my hand at making a few Christmas cards....I shall show you my efforts later.
My Daughter showed me this photo of my 2 Grandsons when they were little.....they are cousins and became best mates almost from Day 1! I adore this photo of them xx
And they still have fun when they are together today......
These two make my heart happy.....such great young guys.....BIASED of course!
Take care everyone.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
